dear fellows, i saw a dood wala on 2 stroke yamaha 100 around 3 months back on G.T. Road (wazirabad Road) 15 KM south of Wazirabad that in the morning time he donot have the side mirrors and he gave indicator to turn from a u-turn and only moved his neck to the right side (as people used to tilt their neck a little to right to move to right side and left to move to left- this has become another standard indicator only in Pakistan) and then without looking back as he had lots of load of milk on back he turned sharply.
What i saw with my eyes was horrible---- a loaded truck passed over him and his bike --- the milk was all over the road with the blood of the poor guy; he died on spot and I cant describe his condition ofter the accident..... I cant sleep that night as that image always kept coming back to my mind. He also wasn't wearing any helmet but even if he had one ; it would not had helped him anyway.
From that day on, i put back both of my side mirrors on my bike. Whenever i use to turn on GT road now; first i give indicator , look in side mirrors ; and then look back to check for the "blind spot" and after that I turn with ease and dont hurry or panic.
My request to all riders is that use indicators to turn , and must use side mirrors at least on the G.T. road as there is heavy and speedy traffic there. One more thing i really wish should be their by automobile manufacturers in the bikes is the indicator to go straight (both indicators blinking at the same time) that is a must when you are crossing a chowk you know.
